Loved, loved, loved this simple and elegant recipe! I actually used a 13 oz round of brie, and had plenty of pastry to cover. I was a little concerned about cutting the soft cheese in half, so I put it in the freezer while my pastry sheet was thawing. Cut beautifully. I used raspberry preserves, made beautiful pastry leaves and berries for the top, and served on a cake platter with fresh raspberries around. Wonderful! This would be terrific for the holidays. Thanks so much for sharing! Addendum 12/28/08: please note, I place the brie in the freezer only 30 minutes, I do not freeze it, just give it a good chill to set it up for easy slicing! Hope this helps clarify, Wendy
